The Quelch Afterdark team has announced it will be present for the opening round of the 2014 MCE British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch with Josh Wainwright.

The team made a handful of BSB outings towards the end of the 2013 season but has opted to focus on competing in the Spanish-based CEV Repsol series in 2014, together with a few national wild-card rides in the UK.

Having made its CEV debut at Jerez last week, Quelch Afterdark Kawasaki will return to UK soil at Brands Hatch, with Wainwright set to make his series debut.

"I am excited to be a part of the Superbike grid at Brands Hatch as it was the Championship that I have grown up watching. I have no expectations, I just want to get in some more laps on the Superbike and do the best job that I possibly can. I think that riding with these riders will also be the best thing for me to experience and learn from and I am really looking forward to it.

"I am naturally an aggressive rider and the Superbike seems to suit that style so I feel like I have adapted quickly to it with our experience in Spain. I have to thank for their support in making this happen too and I can't wait to get started at Brands Hatch."

Wainwright finished 11th on his CEV Repsol Superbike debut at Jerez. Watch the highlights video CLICK HERE
